Life in NJ + an outdoor workout!
HEYOOOOOO. Lots of stuff for you guys today.
#1. Remember how I told you pictures of me from the trailer trash themed party were bound to crop up on the internet? They totally did. If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you can see it. If not, sorry I’m not sorry. Let us just say it’s bad enough I’m not removing the tag.
#2. I spent this weekend up in the Boston area chilling with some cool homies for JC‘s birthday. It was a lot of fun hanging out with some people I’d met before as well as some new faces. (Steve talks about it HERE. He spelled my name wrong, but I’ll forgive him in lieu of the fact that I really like him and his lovely fiance, Lindsay.) I even got to train in the hometown gym of Sir Lawson… 2 hours in the gym left us with numerous competitions and surprisingly few injuries.
Our workout included trap bar deadlifts, 4 sets of 15 barbell glute bridges, a 1/2 bodyweight glute bridge isohold competition, preacher curling, preacher curling on a bosu in the squat rack, 1 set of 45 degree back extensions, ANDDD a grip contest.
What’s a grip contest?
The worst idea ever.
“LETS HANG FROM A BAR AND SEE WHO CAN DO IT LONGEST!” Please disregard the fact that I had 50 lbs less to hold up than everyone else and still got whomped.
Like my outfit? I bought it at Walmart on the way to the gym.
#3. An outdoor workout!
Sorry if my snatch makes your eyes bleed. (LOL!!! Did anyone else bust out laughing at that or am I the only really immature person that is here?) I know I ‘press’ them too much at the end. Sometimes I can get it w/o that and sometimes I can’t….something I’m working on!
Goblet pause squats (5 reps for 5s each)
Kettlebell snatch (6-8 reps/arm)
2 hand swing (15-20 reps)
Complete circuit 3-4x or until you break a limb.
I might do upper body later OR I might just do upper body tomorrow. I’m really lazy today. Maybe that’s why I’m getting chubby, heh.
#4. I’m bored as hell.
My life looks really cool in my blog, but it isn’t. I have nothing to do for the next 3 weeks aside from workout, read, and estalk people I have and haven’t met in real life. WTF. Someone entertain me. Unemployment blows, but I’m trying to enjoy it while I can. I know that in September, my life will be like this:
